      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I think the Giants/Pats matchup is a lot better (and will be a better game) then if the Packers made it. Takes away the media Farve hype too.

Now you have a team with a record of 18-0 against a record breaking team with 10 straight road wins. I think it will be fun to watch.

I hope Farve decides soon. This wait wait wait is so stupid. Either say "yes" or "no".

The Packers had a fantastic year...but that last game was not them at their finest...that is for sure.

If he would have made the Super Bowl, I think he would have retired. Now, I think he will try one more time.

Just listening to his press conference on espn I think he might be hanging it up. He said the decision will be quicker than it has been in recent years, so I think he pretty much has his mind made up.

You're definatly right about the hype that would have been around Favre for making it to the Super Bowl. I'm glad I don't have to listen to it.

Hey homer, are you kidding, it was a blowout except for the score. The Giants dominated the game, Manning completely out played Favre. One 90 yd pass and you think they played great. My fault guess I watched a different game.

I think he'll be back.

Live by the sword die by the Sword.

Lets face it he's 12-10 in the win-loss column with a 86 passer rating and 38 TDs along with 28 INT's in the playoffs these are not conducive numbers to winning playoff games let alone Super Bowls probable why the CHOSEN one has only 1 Super Bowl victory.

That is one more than 95% of all the other QBs in NFL history...

And there aren't too many going on 40 year old starters in the NFL... there aren't even too many going on 40 back-ups in the NFL...

He didn't play like we've seen all season, but I think as he get's older, the cold will not be his ally but rather his enemy!

Good Luck!

And how many Superbowl rings do ANY Viking QB's have???????????????????????????????????

He Has nearly all the records, makes him one of the Best QB's of ALL time. Deffinately top 5.

When the Vikes find someone better you can brag. Last guy the Vikes had that was even in Favres Area code was Fran Tarkington.

I am soooooooooo sick of hearing that from the quackers fans. That is the only come back I ever hear and it's extremely tiring and old. I could give a rat's butt that the Vikes haven't won a title yet, not gonna turn me to a [poor word choice] fan. I respect Favre for what's he's done (especially the role in "Something about Mary") and lets not forget with all the records he also holds the most interseptions. The thing I can't stand about him isn't even him, it's the friggin' comentators. I am so sick of them putting him way up on a peddestal. Is he one of the best? Yes. Can he do no wrong? No. Look yesterday, the team didn't play great, but his over confidence and listening to Madden lost him the game. I so sick of hearing "only Favre can throw that pass". No, only that hillbilly gets lucky enough to connect on it. Course anyone else throws a shuttle once a year, he does it about a hundred times, you should connect now and then.

i love it when someone brings up the super bowl thing. then a vikes fan says something about how that is all packer fans ever say. i guess i don't understand what else there is.

i hope favre retires, rodgers is ready. he can step in and be the best QB in that division.

Vikings quarter backs have 2 superbowl rings. Brad Johnson (TB) and Wade Wilson (Dallas). You're right Favre is one the best QB's of all time. Surprised he didn't come through in OT.

To no one in particular, let's keep things positive...the thread is about Favre returning for another year, keep opinions and thoughts on topic.

Geez, the Vikes and Pack don't even play and yet people are still ready to start a bar fight!

I'd like to see Favre return for another year, if anything because he's so close and the team should only get better. If it's almost 40 Favre or 20-something Rodgers, I'd take Favre in a heartbeat. He had a great year.

Who said anything about this being a Viking/Packer debate. I thought it was whether or not he would be coming back.

Without a doubt I'd say top 3 for sure IMO.

I was just pointing out some stats like his 3-6 record and 18 interceptions in his last 9 playoff games.

Once again everyone, this is not a "how good is Favre, is he the best, Packers are better than the Vikings" thread, it is if he is coming back or not.

IMHO, I believe he will be back for another year. His team (yes his team) is the youngest in the NFL, none of this years players are going anywhere (at this moment) and he obviously knows this team will only get better. Along those lines, IMO, he probably feels like he needs to atone for that bad pass (not bad because it shouldn't have been thrown, but that he didn't get enough on it at that point in the game). He will be back, and if he decides not to, he will go down as one of the top 3 QB's in the history of the game.

      I've been fishing all my life, but I've only recently started seriously catfishing. I've discovered a spot near my home on the Minnesota river where the current comes to a still near a small, no longer active dam where there are rocks and tons of baitfish, which I assume should be a good spot for big flatheads. I've fished this spot a few days now and have only successfully pulled out a small flathead of maybe 5 or 6 pounds on a medium sized live sucker about a foot below a bobber. For your experienced catters, what's the best approach for big cats this time of year? Do you prefer live bait or cut bait? When using cut bait are heads or filets better? Since MN only allows one rod out should I be focusing my bait near the bottom of the river or a couple feet under a bobber? I tend to fish between 7pm-10pm although I'd like to try more late night fishing. Thanks for any suggestions!

      Had similar issues.  I was up for three weeks, each week it was a different set of boats encroaching.  I don't think you can do to much about the one week fishermen. They are in a panic to find fish and when the see one go in the boat, look out. One time,  I was looping in and out of a small spot picked up nice fish and this guy comes in right on that spot and starts jigging.  I couldn't even get back to it.  He would have never know it was there.  I just leave and find more fish.  
    • RoosterMan
      Definitely that time of year again.  Load the boat full of kids and put the raps out and be prepared to catch a lot of fish.  Only gets better from here.  Pic of my son and his cousin and their limits.  Good memories being made.

      When archery deer season opens Saturday, Sept. 16, mandatory testing for chronic wasting disease and restrictions on moving deer carcasses begins again in southeastern Minnesota’s CWD management zone, deer permit area 603.  “With archery deer season approaching, hunters are encouraged to plan ahead and be aware of the testing that will be required and the specifics about when they can and can’t move carcasses out of the CWD zone,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Archery hunters in deer permit area (DPA) 603 will be required to submit the head from all adult deer 1 year old or older so lymph nodes can be tested for CWD. Hunters cannot remove the carcass or carcass remains from the CWD zone until a negative test result is reported. Carcass movement restrictions do allow hunters to immediately transport out of the zone quarters or other deer pieces without spinal column parts; boned-out meat; and antlers with a skull plate that is free of brain matter. Hunters should check page 65 of the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook for additional information. “Archery deer hunters also should check the DNR website for the DPA boundary map,” Cornicelli said. “As a reminder, the CWD management zone was created from DPAs 347 and 348, so hunters need to be mindful of what area they’re hunting.” Hunters are required to register their deer. DNR will allow phone and Internet registration during the archery season in the CWD zone. The system will be monitored for compliance and may be turned off if needed. Mandatory testing and carcass movement restrictions will remain in effect for area 603 throughout deer seasons for archery, firearm, muzzleloader and any late season hunts. Head collection boxes will be located in: Chatfield: Magnum Sports, 1 1st St., 507-867-4399. Preston: DNR area forestry office, 912 Houston St., 507-765-2740. Lanesboro: DNR area fisheries office, 23789 Grosbeak Rd., 507-467-2442. Wykoff: Goodies and Gas, 104 E Front St., 507-352-2421. Harmony: Oak Meadow Meats, 50 9th St., 507-886-6328 Archery hunters should do the following: Field dress (gut) deer as normal. Register deer via phone, internet or walk-in big game registration station. If harvest occurs late in the day, sample (head) submission and registration do not have to occur on the same day. If the deer will be mounted, a video showing how to properly cape your deer is available at bitly.com/capeadeer. Remove the head, leaving at least 4 inches of neck attached. Hunters can take meat out of the zone immediately but the carcass (head with brain and spinal column) cannot be moved outside deer permit area 603 until a negative test result is received so hunters must: Make arrangements to refrigerate the carcass before the deer is processed; Cut deer into quarters or other pieces; or Bone-out the meat. Ensure no spinal column or brain matter is included with the meat or on the antlers. Properly dispose of carcass remains. There will be a dumpster at the DNR forestry office in Preston for hunters who don’t have a way to dispose of remains. The Preston dumpster is being provided as a courtesy for deer carcass disposal only. It will be removed if people attempt to process deer there or use the dumpster for trash disposal. Bring the entire head of deer to one of five head box collection sites. Each collection box has specific instructions on how to properly submit the head for sampling. Put heads in the plastic bags provided. Use the maps provided at each box to mark an “X” where the deer was harvested. Submit this map with sample. Samples during the archery season will be submitted for testing on Mondays and Thursdays. It may take up to four business days for test results to be available.  CWD test results can be searched using a nine-digit MDNR number online at www.mndnr.gov/cwdcheck. Deer hunters should regularly check the DNR’s CWD website at mndnr.gov/cwd for the most recent information. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't know if fishing is better or worse in Minnesota, but you can get a perfectly adequate fishing boat for under 20k,  under 10k if you are ok with used.   For example, a boat like this would totally do everything you want to do... http://hotspotoutdoors.com/forums/topic/181008-2005-lund-explorer-1600-with-merc-60hp-4-stroke-efi-fully-loaded/ I don't know if this is a good price or a good boat, but you get the picture...

      Firearms and muzzleloader hunters who want to harvest antlerless deer in a deer permit area designated as lottery this hunting season are reminded they must purchase their license by Thursday, Sept. 7. Hunters who purchase their license before this date are automatically entered into the lottery for the deer permit area or special hunt area they declare.  This season, antlerless deer permits are issued by lottery in 48 of Minnesota’s 130 deer permit areas. No application is needed to take antlerless deer in permit areas with hunters choice, managed or intensive designations. Hunters who want to participate in special firearm deer hunts also need to apply for permits that are issued through a lottery, and the application deadline is Sept. 7. More information about deer permit areas, how their designations are set and special hunts is available on the deer page and in the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
